I have my app_config set up so that 5 WUs can be going at the same time (4 GPU and 1 CPU). However, it doesn't seem to be the case with Help Conquer Cancer WUs for GPU and CPU...



Any ideas why?

I had 4 GPUs and 1 CPU working OK with the Clean Energy Project.

I believe that HP was offering a cloud based service trial similar to this last year and a few members used a free trial that was offered to crunch for awhile. I don't remember the performance or the costs involved past the trial period- maybe some of those that tried it will offer their impressions on it.

My opinion- I build what I crunch on. However, it does offer a way to crunch for someone with signicant fund raising skills- it also offers a way to continue to contribute if you don't have the hardware or are suffering under extreme power costs to crunch on your own hardware.
A two core instance did around 2k PPD and it was around $15/30 days runtime as far as I remember. They were running under Linux and did real good but you have to hold it up against - noise, heat, HW investment and electricity cost. I had 20 times 2 cores when it was free and ended up having one until I couldn't connect to it any longer. If i lived in a real hot country with real high electricity cost I would do it.

As I see it you have your 4 GPU running and the CPU WUs are waiting since the lone CPU core is working on CEP which only just started. Did you made the change to more GPU/less CPU just now? If yes then all is OK.

No idea.

Where do I find that setting?
You're running only HCC WUs (GPU and CPU both) so check your appconfig file.

Code:
<app_config>
   <app>
      <name>hcc1</name>
      <max_concurrent>[B][COLOR="Red"]X[/COLOR][/B]</max_concurrent>
      <gpu_versions>
          <gpu_usage>??</gpu_usage>
          <cpu_usage>??</cpu_usage>
      </gpu_versions>
   </app>
</app_config>
Try changing the X to 5.

Ah, yes.

I have 4.

For gpu 0.5 and cpu 0.75. The idea was to have a little cpu left over to run just a cpu WU.

I have a quad core (qx9770) which has only 4 threads.

I now have other types of WUs so no problem.

I will try 5 when I only have HCC WUs. Thanks for the idea.

OK guys, I've compiled the current points of all entrants in my spreadsheet--you can see your progress here:



Soup's entry and Aquinus' entry have since been fixed ;)

Warning to NHKS, 7mm, seby83, blibba, modded, sneddenraj, The Grapist, and Sorin Tanasa: all of you are in danger of not making the required points (25k BOINC, or 175k in my spreadsheet). You need to turn things up a bit, and I'd like a PM. Thanks!

Does anyone know of a stats website that updates fairly quickly?

The WCG website often seems to take a day or more to register what I've done, and there's no way of knowing how much individual tasks are worth in the client.

I've recently turned 3 cores of my 3.6GHZ socket-1156 Xeon onto WCG, about how many BOINC should they be earning per hour?

I think WCG website updates in 12-13 hrs.

The WCG website updates every twelve hours. The BOINC manager updates whenever you hit "Update" in the projects tab. Free-DC updates three times a day (~8AM EST, ~3PM, ~8PM). BOINCStats updates on a pattern that I haven't been able to figure out yet :p

How many days left to go?? Now both my GPU's are making noise, 1 I got back from RMA over the summer. I sent in a RMA request and willl send them both in for repair/replace.

I am going to keep them running until the challenge is over or they blow. After that I will be out of the game until I can get them back.

I am going to keep them running until the challenge is over or they blow. After that I will be out of the game until I can get them back.
Sorry to hear you're having trouble :( I would suggest shutting down those cards if they may fail on you- best to preserve what you have and go for the long haul..... I have my 6870 giving me trouble atm but I should be able to get it back to 100% with a dose of fresh TIM (I've cut the clock back on it until I can take care of it) ;)

Challenge ends next Friday (3/8)

:cry:

I just came here to ask for some input on a purchase decision I have. The major reason why I'm considering it is because for crunching, my rig...

I will post this here as well as I posted it on your other thread.

I actually think that you would be better off running dual 7770's or a single 7850 or 7870 rather than the 6xxx series of cards.

I am running a single 6870 in one of my crunching rigs and it doesn't do worth a crap at crunching. :banghead:

I would really like to trade it for a 7770 or just sell it and purchase a 7770. The 7770 will put out much better PPD's than the 6xxx series of cards.
